First of all, try to ping the default gateway (
Make sure, that there is no proxy configured in your internet browser.
How are you connected to the router (wireless or wired)?
Don't know, whether you've done this posting over the router in question. Therefore my question: Is it possible to access the internet through this router?

Pinged, timed out.
No proxy. ( I have tried on another computer in the house that was brand new and it didnt work on that either)

And yeah, I am on the internet on this router.

I suggest to connect one of the computers by wire and try to access the routers configuration interface, just for testing.

What did you get, when doing a tracert google.com ?
Normally, the first shown entry should be your routers ip address.

I'll try the wired test and hopefully it works.
Also, I don't understand tracert. I did it but don't know how to find the result. I found the Ip you can connect to google with, though.

Tracert (Traceroute) will show all hops on it's way to the destination ip address.
So first, tracert tries to get the ip address of e.g. google.com.
Then tracert makes the same thing, a browser must do, to access google.com.
It simply traces all gateways and routers on it's way to the destination.
But the first hop is your routers ip address, if it's configured as your default gateway.
So if you did not get as the first hop, there is something wrong with the gateway or the ip configuration of your computer.

If it generally doesn't work, tracert will show 3 asterix and a timeout per line and ends after 30 lines.

The output looks like this:

I am trying to portforward so I can host a server of a game I play, but whenever I try to connect to my default gateway it just times out and cannot load.

Question: Are you trying to run the game in server mode from one computer on your LAN and then trying to connect to it from a different computer also in your LAN via the router?

If the answer to my question is yes, then you need to stop that and connect directly to the server from the client. A port forward will only work when you are coming into the LAN from an external source (the internet). The port forward works between the router's external (WAN) interface and the internal (LAN) side. With both PC's on the LAN side, the port forward won't work.

Next time, use the IP of the game server and it should work just fine.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
